Guns and drugs seized at High Street

Police appeal for help finding source of home-made guns

UPDATE 2PM: TWO home-made guns seized in a raid at High Street, Lismore, have been described by police as "very dangerous items" and called for help in finding where they came from.

Richmond Local Area Command crime manager Inspector Cameron Lindsay said the guns were a danger to both the person using the weapons as well as anyone they were pointed at.

"We really want to know, from anyone that may have some information, about where these items are being manufactured," Insp Lindsay said.

"We believe that they could be made locally. They need to be made by somebody who has some kind of knowledge about weaponry."

Anyone with information should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
